"What do you want for Christmas?"
"Do you have your tree yet?"
"What is your favorite Christmas carol?"

Grrrr. I am sick of everyone on JM (and in real life) assuming I'm Christian. I'm not! There are plenty of non-Christians out there!

Anyone else sick of the assumptions?

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

its a little annoying bec. no one asks me about how my chanukah planning is going, its all about x-mas. But i too just try to ignore it... if it brings joy to others then that a good thing, we need more joy in this world!

This is a huge debate i alwasy get inton on any of the boards I belong to. Because people think that I should not be offended when someone is making that asusmption. I am not offended, but find it rather ignorant.

Anymore when someone says Merry Christmas - if it is during Chanukkah, I will say Happy Chanukkah.

If someone ask my kids if they are ready for Santa they are still young enough and innocent that they set the person straight! LOL

Agreed. This is my least favorite time of year. I love (almost LOL!) all of the ladies in my PR (and the people in real life), but Christmas seems to be dominating everything lately. There was one post wishing a Happy Hanukkah....

That being said, I am loving lighting the menorah with Sadie This has been the best Hanukkah EVER!

I saw an article on aish this morning (I cannot cite it here because I don't have enough posts yet, but the title of the article is "What am I Doing for Christmas?") about what the best response is to the "what are you doing for Christmas?" question. The author said "being Jewish"! I really like that!
